Taking a Helicopter Ride to Find RochMN’s Roaming Bison (WATCH)
The story of Rochester's Roaming Bison has been going on for a few days now...here's what we know...
A deputy found it nearby and began approaching the bison to check an ID tag on one of its ears but backed off when it raised its tail and began "urinating profusely" which can be signs of aggression. Behrns says the male bison weighs between 1500 and 1800 pounds.
Behrns says the owner is aware of the missing bison and is apparently trying to capture it. Behrns says anyone who spots the animal should keep their distance and call the sheriff’s office.
We don't know if the bison has been found or not, so today on Rochester Today, James Rabe and Luke Lonien went in search of the majestic beast. Luke did the hard work in the KROC News Copter. Click play on the video and enjoy the report.
